AVENGERS: EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES Season One Reviews

Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2010) – Season 1, 26 episodes. I reviewed AVENGERS: EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES in a series of 6 separate reviews, which are all included below. Needless to say, AVENGERS: EMH is a fantastic cartoon, one of the very best animated superhero efforts. I’ve assembled (ha, I’m hilarious) them all here to kick…

SPIDER-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS: The One With Ms. Lion

Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (1981) – 3 seasons, 24 episodes. Running concurrent with the friendless SPIDER-MAN cartoon, AMAZING FRIENDS is the one that’s more fondly remembered. Truth be told, it’s the less consistently good cartoon, but if you could only watch one, it’s hard to argue against the one with two bonus heroes in…

TRANSFORMERS: PRIME – DARKNESS RISING: Maximum Overdrive

Transformers: Prime – Darkness Rising (2010) – Starring Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Steven Blum, Jeffrey Combs, Ernie Hudson, Sumalee Montano, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Dwayne Johnson. I haven’t seen the TRANSFORMERS: PRIME cartoon before. Heck, since I don’t have cable, I hadn’t even heard of it before the DVD release of DARKNESS RISING, the 5-episode…

SPIDER-MAN (1981): The One Without His Amazing Friends

Spider-Man (1981) 1 season, 26 episodes. There were two Spider-Man cartoons that hit the airwaves in 1981. This is the other one. The one everyone remembers is SPIDER-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS. SPIDER-MAN was released alongside AMAZING FRIENDS and while the look is the same, and while the two series appear to be taking place…

THE HOBBIT: There Are Moments Which Can Change a Person for All Time

The Hobbit (1977) – a Rankin/Bass Production – Starring Orson Bean, Richard Boone, Hans Conried, John Huston, Otto Preminger, Cyril Ritchard, Brother Theodore, Paul Frees, Jack DeLeon, Don Messick, John Stephenson, Glenn Yarbrough, and Thurl Ravenscroft. As I’ve grown older, my appreciation for Rankin-Bass’ animated version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s THE HOBBIT has grown with me.…

FROSTY’S WINTER WONDERLAND: The Holiday Special that Inspired Weird Science

Frosty’s Winter Wonderland (1976) – a Rankin/Bass Production – Starring Jackie Vernon, Andy Griffith, Paul Frees, and Shelley Winters. FROSTY’S WINTER WONDERLAND is the official sequel to FROSTY THE SNOWMAN (forget about that FROSTY RETURNS nonsense), and while it’s not as good, it’s still a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas special in it’s own right. WONDERLAND sees…

IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN: I Got a Rock

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) – The Third Peanuts Special – Directed by Bill Melendez – Starring Peter Robbins. Sally Dryer, Kathy Steinberg, Christopher Shea, Gabrielle DeFaria Ritter, Lisa DeFaria, Ann Altieri, Glenn Mendelson, and Bill Melendez. Charles Schulz’s PEANUTS is at its best for me when it focuses on the power of…

SCOOBY-DOO! CAMP SCARE: I Know What You Did Last Friday the 13th

Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare (2010) – The 15th Direct-to-Video Scooby-Doo Movie – Starring Frank Welker, Matthew Lillard, Mindy Cohn, Grey DeLisle, Scott Menville, Tara Strong, Stephen Root, Mark Hamill, Dee Bradley Baker, Phil Lamarr. I’ll be honest, I only watched SCOOBY-DOO! CAMP SCARE because it’s Horror Month, I felt like I needed to watch something Scooby-Doo…

AVENGERS: EMH: The Micro Season All Pieced Together

Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2010) – The Micro Season (also listed as Episodes 3-7 at Wikipedia, and Episodes 1-5 on the DVD – not confusing at all). Finally, AVENGERS: EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES has come to Netflix Instant Watch and not a moment too soon. The few episodes I managed to watch back during the first…
